    Having spent the last few days looking at all the various systems and combing through the Forums I have got my head all messed up about which system to buy.

    My main requirements are:

    1. Must have Digital Optical In - so I can play my SKY+ through it
    2. NOT have tallboy speakers
    3. Cost no more than £300

    I have looked at the Pioneer SCS 222 and the various Sony offerings. I am tempted by the Pioneer.

    Could anybody offer any advice as to which system may be best. :lease:

    Also, due to lack of space around the TV any front speakers will probably have to rest on the floor, is this a major problem? and if so does any firm offer slightly larger front speakers rather than the satellites ?

    Cheers

    It isn't a good idea to put speakers directly on the floor, they need to be on stands.

    I am looking at the Sony HT-DDW760 system but I have just come across the panasonic XR-30. Do people have any thoughts on these?

    A good site is www.avland.co.uk. This gives you diagrams of what connections units have which may help
